This is a great recipe my whole family loves. Chicken is coated in spices, fried, then simmered gently in orange juice.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) orange juice

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Combine the salt, pepper, hot paprika, cumin, cinnamon and brown sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle the spices on the chicken using all of the spice mixture.
  2. Heat oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken in the hot oil for 4 minutes. Turn the chicken and lower heat to medium-low. Pour in the orange juice; simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 7 minutes. Serve the chicken with a bit of the pan sauce spooned over the each piece.


chicken stock can be used instead of the orange juice for a less sweet dish.


Chicken thighs work well in this dish also.
